Our Brands

For more than 40 years Henri Willig has been a well-known name in the cheese world. The most traditional cheeses that are still produced in-house at our cheese factories in Katwoude and Heerenveen are of the highest possible quality and enjoy international appreciation. In order to offer our customers the widest possible variety of cheese and to meet all their requirements, we have launched three brands of our own; Henri Willig, Hooidammer and Polderkaas.


Henri Willig

Finally, we obviously still carry the Henri Willig cheese brand. Henri Willig cheese acquired its greatest international reputation with the Baby Cheese, which has been copied many times since then. These little cheeses, wrapped in brightly coloured packaging, are still prepared daily in their own cheese factory according to a special process. The small shape makes the cheese very suitable to send abroad. Like all other cheeses, the Baby Gouda cheese is available in different flavors. Special flavor combinations such as cumin, garlic, chili pepper, black pepper, truffle, pesto and fenugreek are unique experiences and make every cheese platter complete.


Hooidammer

Hooidammer is the organic brand that falls under Henri Willig. Our organic cheeses are made exclusively from whole milk from organic and biodynamic dairy farming and are made exclusively from the highest quality of goat, sheep and cow's milk. Just like the Polderkaas, Hooidammer also contains a very versatile selection of cheeses, all of which have their own sustainable and unique taste experience. With flavors like basil, garlic, fenugreek and many others, it is an assortment which the real cheese lover will adore.


Polderkaas

Polderkaas is a distinctive brand from Henri Willing, perfect for the real cheese lover. Polderkaas has a very versatile assortment of cheeses with interesting flavors and textures that are exclusively made from cow, goat or sheep's milk. The range includes not only the general cheeses such as young or old cheese but also pesto cheese, cheese with nettle and onion, cheese with garlic and cheese with chili. Of course they are all handmade in our cheese factory in Heerenveen.
